Nothing says back-to-school (whatever that means right now) like a Thermos of tomato soup and a side of Ritz crackers. It’s wholesome and so right. That’s why I wanted to bring back this home-run hit of soup club – it’s nostalgia and all the good things brewed in one cozy pot. It’s kind of the show pony of my soup recipes, representing the body of its recipe peers; I teach it a lot in classes. Last year, in fact, “Food and Wine” ran it along with an article I wrote about my friends to announce the launch of the “Soup Club” cookbook’s Kickstarter campaign. So may you slurp this favorite as a cheers from me to you, grateful as ever that we gather together around soup every week.
- Serve it with a grilled cheese of your choice
- Spoon some lebneh or Greek yogurt over top
- Drizzle with olive oil, or add a tablespoon of butter as you reheat the soup, sounds weird but it’s not I promise
- Stir in a tender green like baby spinach, baby kale or arugula
Show me how you serve it by emailing me your photo! Submissions are automatically entered to win a drawing for a Soup Club cookbook.
Yes, all this fun and love went into the recipe. That’s why it tastes so good.
